Although marketed as a Mandarin Airlines service, the new twice-weekly Taipei Songshan to Fuzhou service is clearly operated by parent company China Airlines.
- Mandarin Airlines is starting a new service between Taipei Songshan (TSA) and Fuzhou (FOC) in eastern China. Operated twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Fridays), but by the airline’s parent China Airlines’ 737-800s, the 254-kilometre sector started on 18 February. The route will be flown in direct competition with Xiamen Airlines (six times weekly) and TransAsia Airways (four). In addition, Mandarin will face indirect competition from Taipei Taoyuan to Fuzhou, operated by Xiamen (daily) and UNI Air (twice-weekly).
